    This is not a disease that had ever struck West Africa before and nobody could have predicted an outbreak like this, at no point in modern history has a Level 4 pathogen infected so many people so quickly across such a large geographical area, its simply unprecedented.
    Pandemic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The "Hong Kong Flu", 1968–69. An H3N2 caused about 34,000 deaths in the United States. This virus was first detected in Hong Kong in early 1968, and spread to the United States later that year. This pandemic of 1968 and 1969 killed approximately one million people worldwide[citation needed]. Influenza A (H3N2) viruses still circulate today.

    During the 20th century, it is estimated that smallpox was responsible for 300–500 million deaths

    During the 20th century, tuberculosis killed approximately 100 million people.[

    Re: Obama administration ignored the CDCís advice to prevent an Ebola outbreak

    Alrighty now......don't any worry. BO has stayed in Washington today and didn't go to the fundraisers he had planned for the second day in a row. BO and his Team are on the J.O.B. Gonna monitor this Ebola......down in Dallas and Ohio from there in DC.

    Will have a CDC Swat Team ready to go.....(don't mind the sidearm people, Fed Employee doncha know. )



    US steps up response as Ebola worries grow.....

    President Barack Obama directed his administration to respond in a "much more aggressive way" to oversee the Dallas cases and ensure the lessons learned there are transmitted to hospitals and clinics across the country. For the second day in a row he canceled out-of-town trips Thursday to stay in Washington and monitor the Ebola response.

    Federal health officials who say they know how to shut down the disease within the U.S. were being called to testify in what was looming as a combative hearing by a House oversight panel on Capitol Hill. He said two Ebola vaccine candidates were undergoing a first phase of human clinical testing this fall. But he cautioned that scientists were still in the early stages of understanding how Ebola infection can be treated and prevented. Amid increasing anxiety over Ebola, Customs and health officials at airports in Chicago, Atlanta, the Washington suburbs and Newark, New Jersey, were scheduled Thursday to start taking the temperatures of passengers from the three hardest-hit West African countries Thursday. The screenings, using no-touch thermometers, started Saturday at New York's Kennedy International Airport.....snip~

    The White House refused to consider the alternative, a travel ban from countries that had Ebola outbreaks. Josh Earnest told the press on October 1, after Duncan was diagnosed with the infection in Dallas, that the administration would not consider a temporary travel ban, and that the US could prevent a “wide spread of Ebola.” Earnest also promised that the Centers for Disease Control would “protect the broader American public by rigorously applying the kind of medical protocols” recommended by the CDC when the disease did appear. “These are the experts,” Earnest insisted.

    Even at that stage, no one communicated the proper protocols to the hospital staff, according to a union representative for the nurses. There were “no protocols” given to the nurses by the CDC or anyone else; they had to make up protocols as they went along, with toxic medical waste piling up to the ceiling. For the first two days, they didn’t even have the proper hazmat suits needed for infectious-disease protection while caring for Duncan. Under those circumstances, the infection of two members of Duncan’s care team should not surprise anyone. The first young nurse self-identified the infection and got herself into isolation over the weekend. The CDC confirmed it as an Ebola case on Sunday morning. By that time, the CDC had been monitoring dozens of people who had come into contact with Duncan as potential cases for contagion, and yet somehow one nurse had flown to Cleveland from Dallas on Friday.

    It doesn’t take “experts” to realize that high-risk potential cases of Ebola shouldn’t board flights or use any other kind of public transportation, especially after a containment breach has been verified. Only after this information came out did CDC director Thomas Frieden announce that no other people being monitored would be allowed to board commercial aircraft. The experts never considered that an issue, apparently. Even after that, the CDC asked people on the flight to contact them, rather than getting the passenger manifest from the airline and tracking down the passengers themselves. These are people who may have been exposed and who could carry the infections further over the next several weeks.....snip~

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/contai...094500403.html



    Due to all this.....BO says he wants a CDC Swat Team for Immediate response and hopefully less than 24 hrs. Frieden even admitted the CDC should have sent a Team once they knew Duncan was infected. Bo would not have to be saying this.....if Freiden had been handling this situation correctly with protocols.

    This is why they should control our Health care

    Let's call this a dry run for a real global epidemic event. CDC gets an F-

    Heya Apdst. What I was wondering about is......why would they send the 101st? I can see Combat engineers and Army Corp and Medics.....but not an Elite Fighting Unit.
